THE WOODLANDS, TX- COVID-19 Wall of Memories will observe the second anniversary of its website launch with an online Zoom program beginning at 7 p.m. this evening, January 4.
The virtual memorial wall honors people from across the U.S. who have died of COVID-19. It also provides information and news about the disease.
Co-founders Mohammed and Ruth Nasrullah will mark the milestone with a program to include Houston City Council Member Letitia Plummer presenting a proclamation from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner recognizing their work. Another proclamation will be presented by Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia.
“Our message this year is that no matter how the nature of the pandemic changes, or how people’s attitudes towards it change, we will never stop remembering those we have lost,” said Mohammed Nasrullah. “To date, 1.1 million people in the U.S. have died of COVID. So far, we have honored 15,000 on our virtual memorial, and our work continues.”
The one-hour anniversary program will be held via Zoom and will feature family members who lost loved ones to COVID-19, community leaders, collaborators, volunteers and supporters, along with additional elected officials including a representative from U.S. Rep. Al Green’s office, who will present a letter of recognition.
Registration is available here.
